Lyo offer expedition meals using natural, fresh ingredients and no preservatives or artificial additives. They stand out from the crowd with unique recipes, the use of chunky ingredients that result in more natural, home style meals.
This delicate meal will bring you back to your childhood... just like mama used to make it. Tender pork loin with potatoes in a creamy dill sauce.
We are cooking before freeze-drying. In our pouches there are no artificial additives, no extra sugar, no palm oil and no preservatives! Our meals are made from 100% natural ingredients and some of them are growing on our own fields.
LYO have tried to take a different route with their meals focussing on natural, fresh ingredients and no preservatives or artificial additives. They proudly cultivate some of the fruits and herbs on their own fields. Other fruits and herbs as well as vegetables come from farmers known to them personally. All ingredients are carefully verified to ensure that their products meet the highest quality standards.
The majority of the meals use interesting combinations of natural ingredients with chunky vegetables, authentic flavours and more of a home cooked approach. We’ve been lucky enough to test a variety of them and have always been impressed with the end results. Generally, we appreciated the good combinations of flavour, texture and portion size.
The fill line for adding water to the packs is novel with a blue area from the bottom showing how much water is required. It is quite a subtle design feature that can be easy to miss and some form of internal indicator would be best but it still works.
This meal is 316kcals, a bit smaller than other brands although I reviewed the Big Pack version at 427kcals. I added the 400ml and waited 10 minutes, if anything I’d added slightly less water. Everything in the meal reconstituted very well including the big pieces of Pork. In real life this wouldn’t be a particularly flavourful meal and this is true of this freeze dried version, if you don’t like spicy food then you’d probably give this a nine, as it is I’m going to give it an 8 because I like a strong flavoured meal. Very good.
